During July we’re highlighting our Learning Resource on the subject of online contexts for moving image. In this Learning Resource, published in January 2021, artists Jenny Brady, Jamie Crewe and curator Shama Khanna respond to five set questions on the subject, considering accessibility, curatorial contexts and feedback when showing moving image work online.

Our series of written learning resources, each covering a different subject, aim to demystify some of the structures of the art and film worlds that artists working with moving image navigate. We invite three contributors to answer set questions on each subject to offer our readers a range of subjective views and experiences of the topic.

Jenny, Jamie and Shama responded the following questions:

  • How can artists find the online audience that they want for their work?
  • What should artists be wary or conscious of when considering making or presenting moving image work for an online audience?
  • How might curators or artists create the best context for a viewer to encounter a moving image work online?
  • How can artists get the kind of feedback they need about their work when there is no cinema or gallery audience to encounter it in person in a public space?
  • What are the positive aspects of presenting moving image work online for artists (or curators)?
